Crystal Rodrigue: 2012 Collector's Showcase Winner Solo
Public Opening Reception: Saturday, December 1, 5-7pm
Crystal Rodrigue, employs the intensive process of overlaying photos on gilded metallic backgrounds. Her work further explores working with gilding and photographic images. Rodrigue places more emphasis on the gilding and the images by placing them on raw steel sheets to create a neutral background and shift the viewer’s focus to the gilded images. Rodrigue was the winner of the 2012 Collector’s Showcase exhibition, an annual exhibit held in February highlighting artists from the Workhouse while supporting the arts in Lorton.
